Who May Be Held Responsible for San Antonio Oil Field Accidents?

Oil companies typically have workers’ compensation insurance in the case of accidents occurring in the workplace. This type of insurance may protect employers from legal repercussions of injuries and provides medical care as well as income to oil field accident victims. Unlike an injury claim, obtaining workers’ compensation is not based on fault, which means you may recover losses even if you were partially accountable for the circumstances of the accident.

In Texas, however, employers are not required to have workers’ compensation insurance, which means you may hold one or several parties accountable for the injuries you sustained due to negligence.

The parties that may be held responsible include the following:

Your Employer

Typically, your employer may be held liable for oil field injuries if they failed to uphold safety regulations and standards, provide secure equipment and training, and conduct routine inspections and maintenance.

Equipment or Part Manufacturer

Malfunctioning machines or parts may contribute to catastrophic injuries while on the job site, including burns, broken bones and fractures, and crush injuries. The manufacturing company that provided equipment may be held accountable for the design and production of defective parts or machines.

Third-Party Providers

Other parties may also hold responsibility for oil field injuries, such as those responsible for regular inspections, repairs, or providing safe working conditions, as well as negligent drivers of company vehicles on the job site.

In instances where your employer does not provide workers’ compensation for injuries incurred in the workplace, you may pursue a legal claim against them. With the help of the skilled oil field accident lawyers at Hilliard Law, we may hold them financially accountable by determining negligence through a comprehensive investigation into your claim and obtaining the necessary evidence to build a robust case.
